What would be better between a 1000$ acoustic with an added acoustic pickup, or a 1000$ electro acoustic?

I'm buying a guitar and I want to choose the right one!

a 1000 dollar martin electro-acoustic will probably sound better than a 1000 dollar martin with a peizo pickup under the bridge.

however, if you put a 300 dollar pickup system into a 1000 dollar non electro martin, it would probably sound better.

as far as the 500-800 dollar range guitars go.. id get a more expensive ibanez for example, and put a peizo in it.

that way if im at an open mic or something i can plug in and mic it.
